This session is a part of the Sustainable Futures series forming part of the Skills Development Programme. All sessions under this grouping aim to build awareness of careers which proactively promote sustainable actions towards a better society. These sessions focus on developing skills in global awareness, societal contribution, and collaboration for a common cause.
You'll hear from a variety of different speakers; all of whom have a connection to sustainability in their job role. They will give an insight into how sustainability is embedded into their roles and what skills they deem to be essential in order to be successful in applying for and doing these job roles in future.
We will be introducing the topic of the green world of work and how this is impacting the types of jobs being advertised. And advising how you can be building skills throughout your university journey that will support you to find jobs that may not have existed a few years ago.
